Nordic HealthTech Talents kicked off 2019 with a workshop in Finland with the special theme – Collaborate with the public health sector! With the help of Upgraded– a non-profit association for health & wellbeing startups and innovations in Finland, the startups got to know about the mature and unique Finnish ecosystem from both the hospitals’ and startups’ perspectives.

Are you part of a HealthTech startup? Apply before June 1, 2019 to be part of the game.

NHTT had the pleasure to visit Terkko Health Hub – one of the best health and life science communities of Helsinki! We were also honored to have excellent speakers to shed some light on how the Finnish system works and what to look out for if you want to do a collaboration. The experts from both the public health sectors like HUS testbed, City of Helsinki, startups like Findery, Lean Entries, Goodlife Technology, and Peili Vision shared some unique insights and experiences.

In the evening, we had a fun and insightful networking dinner with all the startups, medical experts and ventures in Helsinki. And we started the next day with the senior business consultant Susie Ruff, where at Maria01 she taught the co-founders how to communicate better and do appealing storytelling to the potential collaborators.

It was very interesting to hear about the digitalization of health care in Finland and reflect on the opportunities that arise from that” – said Love Marcus, CEO of Provement.

  • Provement is a digital evaluation and communication tool that helps clinicians individualize childhood obesity treatment and make it more effective while reducing the clinicians’ workload and the families’ perceived effort.

“It seems that in Finland, they are really interested in attracting new companies and start-ups with a very friendly and healthy environment.” – said Justas Staciokas, CTO of ArionidaPro.

  • ArionidaPro AS is planning to extract the slug slime as a raw material for possible applications as medicinal patches, moisturizing and anti-aging creams, natural lubricants and adhesive and also as a green source of complex proteins.

We offer autonomously operating robots, which can move in arbitrary shaped water, oil and gas pipelines con- tinuously monitoring and detecting erosion and leakage. Countries lose million tones of water, gas and oil from damaged tubes and sometimes it become dangerous for human life and nature when gas or oil pipeline gets damaged. So our product can find damaged or clogged places on their early stage in practically all kinds of pipe- lines over and underground. With the use of our product the damaged sections of a pipeline can be found faster, more easily, precisely and without digging the ground.

This means that maintenance and replacement of pipe- lines will be safer and much more cheaper. Our product is a robot which can move through the pipelines and investigate it with pressure, ultrasonic, flow sensors and camera which can shoot up to 4k video and save it in his memory card or sent it to connected devic- es. This robots autonomously move in arbitrary shaped water, oil and gas pipelines with diameters ranging from 10 cm up to 300 cm.

Our company is a disease management solution. Our software gathers together all the most important information about your health like meds, nutrition, exercise, symptoms, vitals and sleep and analyses it to give you a clear picture of how your health is at any given moment.

Our main focus to start with is on patients with thyroid problems and other autoimmune diseases, but we plan to add on and expand so we can service people with all kinds of chronic illnesses. Having to live with a chronic illness is time consuming, costly and frankly, exhausting. We want to make peoples lives easier with one platform

where you gather all the data you need to keep track of to manage your condition. So the next time you see your doctor you’ll have a much set of data to show him about your progress the past few months, and eventually with integration into the healthcare system the doctor will be able to access all the information himself before your appointment and therefore make a much better diagnosis and decision regarding your treatment.

With integration you will also be able to access your own test results, schedule appointments, prescriptions and better communication with your doctor.​
